Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho recorded his 100th Premier League victory with a 3-1 win over Manchester United (per the BBC).

His side were on the back foot for the opening 10 minutes of the match, until Samuel Eto'o's shot took a very helpful deflection over David De Gea to make it 1-0. Eto'o doubled the lead just before half time, and he completed his first hat-trick in English football shortly after the break.

Javier Hernandez gave United hope with 10 minutes left to play, but the comeback never materialised. Nemanja Vidic's red card in injury time compounded the visitors' misery, and they were lucky to end the game with 10 men as Rafael committed a horrendous foul on Gary Cahill.
